CARE Fertility has been pioneering ground-breaking IVF treatments and Reproductive Genetic techniques for more than 20 years, and over 40,000 CARE babies have been born so far. We have both the expertise and experience to help with even the most complex fertility diagnosis, including the most important one – yours.

CARE during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19)

The HFEA, supported by guidance from the British Fertility Society and Association of Reproductive Clinical Scientists, have stated that clinics cannot initiate any new treatment cycles except in cases of critical medical need for those who need to preserve their fertility because of emergency treatment.

This means that, at the moment, we only have staff essential to the current operation of our clinics, including those teams who are responsible for ensuring the safety of frozen gametes and embryos stored in our laboratories.

We understand that this is a deeply upsetting and anxious time for you and we are working very hard to support you.

Our consultants are able to offer virtual consultations and our new patient enquiry team is also available to help you with any questions about being ready to start treatment as soon as this becomes possible. Our counsellors are available for you to have counselling sessions by Skype or telephone and we urge you to take advantage of their support.


Our current working teams:

  • Embryology, who are looking after all the precious eggs, sperm and embryos in our care.
  • Clinicians, who are helping patients to plan for their future treatment via Skype or telephone consultations.
  • Sonographers/Nurses, helping our patients at the final stages of their treatment.
  • Counsellors, always available to support you. You can have Skype or telephone counselling sessions.
  • New patient team, available for Skype or telephone 1-2-1s. Our new patient team will be able to answer questions you may have related to treatment at CARE Fertility.


You can call our new patient team on 0800 564 2270 or schedule a Skype consult.

We know you will have many questions at the moment so we have answers to many of them here.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.

Counselling during COVID-19: continuing support with telephone and online Zoom appointments

The very best patient care and support is at the heart of what we do, which is why counselling is free and available to everyone at CARE.

Every one of our clinics, including CARE Chester, has a dedicated counsellor, and though they are currently not offering in-person meetings to help minimise the spread of COVID-19, our counsellors are ready to listen with telephone and online appointments available using Zoom.

Our counselling sessions are an opportunity to talk through your thoughts and feelings, and can be really useful if you’re finding treatment stressful or if you’re feeling anxious in these confusing times.

Contact us to find out more about our counselling services or to book an appointment – there is always someone to talk to at CARE.
